One night after piling on 19 hits and 12 RBIs in a 13-7 win against the Harwich Mariners, the Red Sox offense stayed hot in a 9-1 win against the Cotuit Kettleers, as six different players had a multi-hit game and all 11 players to have had a plate appearance reached base at least once. Jack Jett (Hofstra) pitched 3.2 scoreless innings to get the win in his first appearance for Y-D.
A three-run blast by Carson Taylor (Virginia Tech) in the fifth inning and a two-out RBI single by Wyatt Young (Pepperdine) in the ninth gave the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox a 4-4 tie with the Harwich Mariners last night. Erik Tolman (Arizona State) got the start for Y-D and pitched five solid innings, and Jacob Winger (High Point) threw two scoreless innings to bring his ERA down to an impressive 1.10.
In a battle for sole possession of first place in the East Division, the Chatham Anglers’ pitching staff stifled the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox yet again, allowing just two hits and no runs. The Y-D pitching staff fell behind batters, walking nine and giving up six hits. The 5-0 loss puts the Red Sox back in second place and raises questions about how they will fare in the upcoming playoffs.
Florida pitcher Jack Leftwich had his best outing of the summer last night in a 5-0 win against the Bourne Braves. He struck out five batters and gave up just four hits and one walk in 6.1 innings of work. Chase Walter (Western Carolina) and Brady Corrigan (ASU) were spotless out of the bullpen, and the Red Sox offense strung together five runs on eight hits and three walks.
Two days after the Bourne Braves threw a perfect game in five innings against the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, the Y-D offense came alive against the Harwich Mariners, accumulating 12 hits ? including two long balls. Erik Tolman (Arizona State) had another solid outing, but the bullpen gave up seven runs in the 9-4 loss. The Red Sox remain just two points behind the first-place Chatham Anglers.
